During our Studio J® Free-for-All in June, we're giving everyone a FREE Studio J® JPG file—no purchase required! Simply log on to Studio J, create a layout, then order one JPG file of your layout during the checkout process. It's as easy as that! We're offering one free JPG file per customer account during June, so customers who already have a Studio J or a MyCTMH® account are ready to log on and start creating. If a customer doesn't have an account, no worries—they can log on and create an account and then order their free JPG file with no strings attached. Make June the month you introduce all of your customers to Studio J with our FREE JPG promotion. They'll love it and return for more!

Here are some fabulous ideas on what to do with your jpg:
A. Create a layout for your Christmas cards and then have it printed in 6x6 format and layer to create a card. Another take on this is to use the layout JPG and use it to create the Costco type cards. –idea shared by Chris Green
B. Why not use your FREE JPG to print the JPG in 12x12 and add it to your personal scrapbook. Although the color quality may be a bit different when the layout is printed by another company, they will still be beautiful and you can enjoy your layouts in full size! -Idea shared on Amy McGrew's Facebook Page
C. Another way to use your FREE JPG File is to print your JPG in a smaller layout such as 8x8 and begin creating a mini album for a grandparent or friend. Sharing your memories and photos make others who may have missed an event, feel included. These mini albums also make great gifts. –idea shared on Amy McGrew's Facebook Page
D. Share your photos and memories with your friends by emailing the JPG, posting it on your blog and or facebook. Everyone will love to see what you have created! – idea shared on Amy McGrew's Facebook Page
E. Enter the Close To My Heart Facebook Layout Contest: Have you heard about CTMH’s Studio J Free-for-All? In the month of June, EVERYONE gets a free JPG file at StudioJ.com to share online, through email, to print, or to archive! Plus, use your JPG file to enter our Facebook contest. Click the Studio J Free-for-All Facebook tab on the left of your screen when on the Close To My Heart business page (be sure to “like” it if you don’t already) to learn about the contest, and then enter your web-ready JPG file before the end of June!-From the CTMH Facebook Page
Here are some ideas shared by Pam Jarrett:
A. I made a pin to wear made a from the contact sheet that came with my order. It has the little picture of my layout plus the Studio J logo. I printed "FREE jpgs in June" on a piece of Sunflower cardstock and attached it to the top of my pin. The actual pin is one of those you peel off the strip and stick the adhesive on. Found at craft departments everywhere.
B. I am also bring the layout that matches the little picture on my pin with me everywhere I go.
C. I am also carrying a 4x8 Christmas card I had printed using my jpgs. While the photos may not make much sense for Christmas since I used a collection of photos from the Mediterranean Cruise I earned, I chose ones I had printed that contained a large photo and some interesting others. The text on the ribbon says "Sharing the trip of a lifetime--Ron and Pam Merry Christmas." I think showing an improbable set of pages may add some more to the conversation as it was from the Close To My Heart Mediterranean Cruise.
D. I have made a bunch of 2 x 3 Sunflower colored cards to get the person's contact information for me and to give them if I make an appointment to show them Studio J. I color coded them to match my layout accent colors so I can visually spot them in my contact box.
E. I ordered the new Studio J brochures and have them to give if I deem it appropriate at the first contact. If I don't give them out at first, I will use them when I meet with a person to create her layouts for her free jpgs.
From Michelle Rowley:
A. Share your photos and memories with your friends by emailing the JPG, posting it on your blog and or facebook. Everyone will love to see what you have created!
B. Print the JPG in 12x12 and add it to your personal scrapbook. Although the color quality may be a bit different when the layout is printed by another company, they will still be beautiful and you can enjoy your layouts in full size!
C. Print your JPG in a smaller layout such as 8x8 and begin creating a mini album for a grandparent or friend. Sharing your memories and photos make others who may have missed an event, feel included. These mini albums also make great gifts.
D. Print your JPG in a 5x5 or 4x4 size and use it as a Christmas card! Wow, what if you had your holiday greetings ready to go in June! Talk about being prepared! And they will be unique and personalized to you and your family! I bet no one will receive the same or similar card!
E. The most IMPORTANT thing you can do with a high resolution jpeg of your layouts is to burn a couple of cd/dvd copies and store them offsite. With any complete Studio J layout, when you purchase the print of the layout from CTMH you also receive the three JPG's as part of your purchase. Or, you can purchase just the JPG's as well. In the wake of all the tornadoes, flooding, and fires, storing JPG's on a disc off site, assures that your memories and photos are safe.
F. Print the JPG and frame it for a gift. Personalized layout make beautiful gifts filled with memories.
G. In addition to a holiday card, what about a baby announcement, birthday invite, new address or Happy Father's Day card! The options are endless.
